Breaks quickly, good internet reception

I no longer own this. I went through 2 phones, said fukit, got the Huawei Mercury.
It went from OK to POOR quality everything. The keyboard was useful, the screen switched orientation for every program, but broke way way too quickly.
It's Okay not the greatest

This phone is okay I have had it for sometime now I would not recommend it to people who like to text with one hand because you have to use the keyboard. I also am not fond of the camera it kinda sucks! the calls aren't very good either if you are out of town like the next state it is not very good!

Decent Phone; Minor Issues

Very good phone, has many features of a smartphone. However, call reception could be better. The phone loses signal very easily in some places. The web browser is pretty good; can display some HTML desktop pages that take longer to load and risk freezing the phone. Youtube videos will play depending on how strong your signal is. Texting is easy. Camera quality is good; camcorder is mediocre and doesn't record that long. The battery life is very good- if your not using the web too long. Overall, I would recommend this phone.

This is a good phone. Occasionally i have problems with it but all in all it's good. The music player is finnicky and doesn't play while you text which bothers me. The camera is good. The touch screen took some getting used to but i never have any problems. The built in photo editor is a great little tool and it's fairly powerful. I haven't used the internet on it so i can't speak to that but all in all i like it.

I love this phone. There are lots of things I like about it but also things I distaste. I don't like that every time you want to send a text you have to open the keyboard. This is hard to do if you have one had available at the time. Also I've found when I go to save a picture I took the phone will freeze and the picture will be lost. I've never had an issue with anything elsa I can think of but, no that I said that something is bound to go wrong!

Decent... Not Perfect
The phone is ok. Everthing worked fine for the first month. However into my second month my internet stopped working. ANY app that I would click on to get to internet whether it be facebook, myspace, gmail, bank account, web browser, etc.... The phone completely froze and the only way to turn it back on was to remove the battery and restart the entire phone. Even if you hit internet on an accident you had to reboot the phone. Its going into the shop tomorrow.

Alarm does not work
I have always used my cell phone as an alarm clock- until after I bought this phone. The alarm is unreliable. Some days it will not go off at all, other days it will but the snooze fails. More commonly, if I set the alarm and go to bed, it will go off in just a few minutes. In that case, it will not alarm again at the time the alarm is set for, even if you manually reset it. Its easy to test the malfunction. I've demonstrated it several times during the day. 4 out of 10 alarm sets will fail.
Other than the alarm, the phone part seems to work well. The reception isn't on par with my previous samsung flip phone, giving dropped calls occasionally in rural areas where the previous phone worked well.
The phone book is cumbersome to use. To search for a contact you have to flip the keypad out and type or else use an impossible alphabet scroll-er with your thumb.
The camera is of better quality than my previous two year old phone, but probably on par with its peers.
I bought this phone to use the blue tooth with my car (that works as well as any), to use as an alarm clock (which doesn't work at all), and to use as a phone (which works well if you can get reception).
If I could get the alarm clock to work, I'd rate this phone as a keeper or one to buy again, but without the alarm, I'd avoid.

Good phone, having software issues.
I've had this phone for a month. Currently its in the repair shop. First I noticed the snooze doesn't work. I have the alarm set at 5am and hit snooze for 5 more minutes and the alarm won't go off again. Then I noticed the Widget for quick call or text for your contacts mixes up the phone numbers. If I try calling my husband, my sons or mothers phone number shows up. Now the phone sometimes rings when I get phone calls. I will get voice mails, with no missed call even showing up on the phone. I really do like this phone and hope these software issues can be corrected.

fix the specs on this site
an amazing phone from samsung. this phone does everything i need and more. the touch screen is clear and easy to use and u can pick any song from your mp3 to make a ringtone. also my gf has it and shes in love with it. (she has the white one). the only down to this phone is you have to buy it full price from cricket :-/ cost me $179 with tax

a good phone
works well. i like it, one of the best phone i ever had for cricket. phone heats up when im on it for a long time. battery doesnt charge when phone is too hot. will have to get use to the way the internet works. (it works well after u get some exp with it). not much games or app's but the ones it comes with will fill up your home screen. those are the only thing wrong with this phone.

i love this phone
i have had this phone for a week and i love it, the internet is fast and its easy to use, work great on twitter and facefook, youtube could be better but it works ok. all in all the phone works and it is really pretty to look at as well. i would tell anyone who wants a good phone that does what is needed to get this one. also i must say the speaker phone is clear as day and the screan flows very well. the battery is ok and will hold its own for a about 3-5 hours of internet/ txting before needing to be plugged in.

USC does not have a very good phone selection, but when I saw this samsung, I knew it would be good, and i was not disappointed. Customizable, good touch screen, slide-out qwerty keypad. It also has great reception. Recommended

All in all the phone is a great one. The fact that it is a touch screen and slides so you can text is great. I think that the phone is great for the price. Personally I dont think US Cellular has that good of phones, but this one I liked.
